Thank you for stopping by the City of Muscatine blog. We’re launching this blog with the intent of keeping you informed about the happenings within the City of Muscatine. Each department within the City plays a vital role in shaping the quality of life for citizens. We hope to engage with you as we remain committed to communicating timely, relevant information about initiatives within our community.
As this post is about introductions, I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Emily Lofgren and I was recently hired as Communications Manager. I’ll be the one writing most of the blog posts and sharing them on social media. A little about me: I was born and raised in Muscatine. After studying public relations at Drake University, I spent some time teaching in China. I have experience working in both the Iowa State House and State Senate as well as doing communications for a variety of organizations, including the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
I’m excited for this new role and for the opportunity to share stories with you. Great things are happening within the City of Muscatine and I look forward to telling you all about them!
Over the next couple of weeks, as I meet with department heads, tour facilities and get up-to-date on all things City-related, I am bringing you along for the ride. I will share about what I learn in each department and tell you more about what our community has to offer.
Thanks for joining me! Stay tuned for more updates.
